lliis arinics and dfovuT fiim ffromdthu

and from that day on ward Ku-

who had lought at Waterloo from the

Jn one of the humblest houses of a
proud nobleman's estate, a low, white
washed cottage, one of these veterans
lived not so very many 3'cars ago. He
had fought 13' Ids Hag in ono of tho
most gallant regiments until tho last
hour of tho battle, and then had fallen
disabled from active scrvico for the
rest of his life.
That did not seem to bo of so very
fjreat consequence, though, just now;
or peace reigned in the Kind, and with
Ins wife and two beautiful daughters to
.love, his battles to think over and his
pension to provide thebreadand cotl'ee,
the old soldier was as Iiapnv as tho day
was long. It made no difference that
tho bread and the coffee wero:both
black, ami the clothes of the veteran
were coarse and seldom new , , .
Ho, Peggy!" ho used to saytb-his-
wile, " my cloak: is as nun as the one
the IronJJukiuwore when they earrujd
me past'him 'jnstas tho iVcneltfwIro
breaking; and :is for tho broad, only a
veteran knows how tho recollection of
victory makes every tiling taste sweet!"
Hut it seemed as if the old soldier's
life was going to prove like his share in
that great day at Waterloo success
and victory till the end had nearly
come, and then ono shot after another
striking him with troubles ho could
never get over. ,.
Tlio lirst camo in tho y midst of tho.
beautiful summer days, when tho bees
droned through the delicious air, the
rose-bush was in full bloom, and tho
old soldior sat in the cottage door re
veling in it all. A slow, merciless
fever rose up through the soft air it
did not venture near tho high ground
where tho castlo stood, but it crept
'noiselessly into tho whito-w:ishcd cot-
tago, ono night, and tho soldier's two
daughters were stricken down. TJiis
I"! was the beginning of terrible trouble tp
the veteran of Waterloo. JNot that ho
minded watching, for ho was used to
standing sentry all night, and as for
nursing, he had seen plenty of tho
hospital; but to sec his daughters suffer
ing -that was what ho could not bear!
And worst of all, between medicines
and necessaries for tho sick, tho three
months' pension was quito used ,,up,
and when the old soldier's nursing had
milled through the licrconess of the
fover, there was nothing but black
bread left in the house and black
bread was almost the same as no bread
at all to the dainty appetites thpv f oveH

And ho sat more and more in the
cottao door, .as if that could leave tho
trouble behind; but it stood staring be
fore luiu, all the same, till it almost
shut the rosebusli and the bocs out, of
sjo-ht. But oue morning a tromendous
siu-priso camo to him like a lla?h.tnit
of tho sky! He heard tho sound of
galloping troops, and ho pricked up his
ears, for that always made him think of
n cavalry charge.
"Who goes thero?" ho cried; but
'without answering his challenge tho
sound came nearer and nearer, and a
lackey in full livery dashed up to tho
door, and presented him with a noto
Bealed with the blood-red seal of the
castlo arms. It was an invitation to
dine at tho castle with a company of
noblemen and officers of tho army.
"His lordship, who had also fought at
Waterloo, had just learned that a com
rade was living on his estate, and made
hasto to do him honor, and secure, a
famous guest for his dinner party.
The old soldier rose up proudly, and
gave the lackey a military salute.
Tell his lordship," he'said, "I shall
report myself at hcadquartersand pre

done 'me." ""
The lackey galloped off, and tho vet

poor invalids had been watching for, a

Iaalaa fra m a Starch Crop.
It is interesting to note from time to
time, how easily Indian corn retains it
ujirwnscy among American field crops
and how idely and in what varied di
rections in influence is felt. The com
parativoly recent extended uc of corn
ai a commercial source of starch, and
of gluooae, ihovy jHsrhapj more clearly
than anything else tho merit of tho
crop, and nerves to dofiuo with a con
siderable degreo of precision tho place
and standing of com a compared with
tho other products of American agri
culture. It i not many years since the potato
was extolled as capable of producing
upon a given area of land, more nutri
tive matter than any other crop; but,
as anah sis shows, the merit of the po
tato is in great part duo to the starch
which is contained in It in large pro
portion. Yet the statistics of American
commerce thoyv that, considered as a
sort of merchantable starch (and glu
cose), corn has become much moru im
portant than tho potato. In a word,
the potato, when put fn competition
with maize, has failed to justify itself at
the very point where the natural supe
riority of the potato would have seemed
to be the strongest. It may be said, in
passing, that the old notion of tho su
perioiity of the potato among nutritive
crops was disproved yeari ago, and in
no way more clearly than by the " hog
crop"' of America, which, as every ono
knows, could'not possibly be produced
by potatoes alone, though readily raised
It is true enough that the potato has
for many years suffered more or less
from disease aud has been greatly dis
credited on account of its liability to
the attacks of the rot-fungus, to say
nothing of tho Colorado oeetle, but
these considerations mako it appear
only the more clearly that the failure of
thepotato to hold its way with maize must
bo duo to its real inferiority as a crop,
under the conditions of soil, labor and
climate, which obtain in this country.
The yearly production of millions of
pounds of starch and of glucose, from
Indian corn; ami the constantly increas
ing consumption and export of these
products point clearly to the conclusion
that as a source of these materials the
potato has been beaten in the nice. It
is true, of course, that a groat deal of
potato starch continues to bo made in
some parts of the country. Indeed,
potato starch is eveu now quoted iu tho
market reports as selling for a cent
more per pound than corn starch, and
there is little doubt that for some par
ticular purposes it is better suited than
the other kinds of starch. Potato
starch fitillprollLs. withal, to a certain
extent from its old reputation, and from
the fact that it (and not corn starch) is
specified to bo used in many receipts
employed In household economy and
by manufacturers. But for the great
general uses to which sUirch is put, nnd
notably for making glucose and " corn
sirup," the product obtained from corn
All this, like thu current export of
cattle and grain to Europe, marks ono
particular phase of American agricul
ture. It is one inure item, among
many, going to pro've llie immediate ad
vantage of our system of "extensive"
farming. That is to say, the system of
growing small crops at littlo cost.
It is not at, all unlikely that, even
with a' climate liko ours, the potato
might hold its own against maize as a
starch-producing crop, in countries
where high fanning is practiced; for as
much starch can be got out of .0 bush
els of potatoes as from Hi) bushelsof
com; and, taking one year with an
other, it wou!d be easier on tho whole
to raise 2.0O bushels of potatoes to. tho
acre than SO bushels of corn, and e:isier
still to increase this yield of potatoes
than to increase this yield of corn. It
is true, in fact, that in Germany large
quantities of starch and of glucose are
made every year from potatoes, al
though corn succeeds well enough in
tlie southern parts of that country, ami
admirably in many parts of Austria and
Italy. But here in America, experience
has shown that, under our svstem of
farming, com has a certain advantugo
over tho potato. If it bo admitted, for
example, that it is as easy to get -10
bushels of corn to tho acre from tho
generality of our American farms as to
get 100 bushels of potatoes, then corn
will take tho precedence as a source of
starch, for the average yield of starch
per bushel from corn aud from potatoes
is rated at 2i pounds nnd eight pounds
respectively. Even if it be supposed
that it is as easy to grow 150 bushels of
potatoes as 50 bushels of corn, tho po
tatoes would give only 1,200 pounds of
starch while the corn "would give 1,250
The superiority of com over pota
toes, as a starch producer, under tho
conditions which control American ag
riculture, was shown years ago in very
much the same way. though not quito
so clearly, when the distillation of spirit
from corn came to prevail in this coun
try instead of the German practice of
distilling from potatoes. Tho spirit is
derived from the starch in either case,
aud it may be said in general terms that
the crop best littcd for producingstarch
cheaply will be best suited .for distilla
tion. YqI F. U. Btorcr, in llural

In a recent issuc-of the Farmer some
inquiries' appear about drying fruit.
Four years ago bust winter 1 procured
a dryer, and have had it in use ever
since, drying nearly all kinds of fruit,
largo and small, that are"usually raised
on a fruit farm; also pumpkins, sweet
corn and several garden vegetables,
all of which retain their natural llavor
so nearly that-many -persons eating
them prepared for life table do not dis
cover that they are dried products
until .told. I have dried of apples each
vear from S00 to 3,000 pounds, and re
alized from eight to fourteen cents per
pound Philadelphia and Pittsburgh,
whilo common fruit sold at the same
time from one and one-half to three or
four cents per pound. My dried peach
es, pared, brought mo twenty-live cents
per pound readily, and last year thirty
for my best. Raspberries "I sold for
from, "twenty-eight to thirty cents per
pound, requiring a fraction over three
quarts to make a pound of dried ones.
1 did not sell any, fitted cherries hist,
season, but 'did 'some udpittcd at nine
cents per pound, i "cannot tell how
many cherries it will take to make one
pound after drying. I am satisfied that
if wo can sell at home or anywhere
else so they will net us live or six cents
per quart, "wo would not dp better to
dry them, though I think pitted cher
ries sold in our markets for about
twenty-live cents per pound last season.
When I cauuot get'as much as forty
cents per bushel for green apples I dry
alLl can get and think it pa"s. better.
Peaches will net us at least one dollar
per bushel rreen, wlien pared and dried,
and from fifty to seventy-five cents per
bushel to dry them without paring.
Since I have used this dryer the rasp
berries I have dried have, netted me
more than those I sold without drying.
Last season I dried 1,500 pounds" and
sold most of them at thirty cents per
pound. WSlson Halt, in Ohio Fanner.
-Lord Beaconsfield, when ho was
the Disraeli of only' twenty-two years,
was a remarkable-looking young fellow.
He had a pale, almost delicate facef
jet-black hair clustered in curls on a
marble brow, beneath which flashed
strangely-brilliant black eyes.' His
figure was slender and blithe, and he
wore a dress coat of black velvet, white,
kill gloves with draperies of black silk

Can Vouk Pcmpkiss. A correspon
dent of the New York World says; I put
mine in the cellar Iato in the fall and
by the time they showed signs of decay
I'liavo spine empty fruit cans. I cut
un one or two numnkins at a time a I
have leisure. 1 cook them thoroughly
and strain the same as for immediate
Use. Then I return the mass to thu
kettle, let it get hot and can it the same
as 1 would any fruits, taking care that
it is (lacked down so there arc no nir
bubles. One can will mako live or
six delicious ides at a season when they
taste better then they do in tho fall.
Hoises should bo watered In tho
morning before they are fed. A full
drink ot water immediately after being
fed is a sure way of producing indiges
tion, if not intlammation. When water
is drunk by horses tho bulk of it goes
directly to tho largo intestines, and
little of it is retained iu the stomach.
Some old and worthless horses, by way
of experiment, wero fed with split pease
and supplied with water immediately
before bemgkilled. It was found that
tho water had carried the pease into tho
intestines, whore no digestion took
place at all.
HOW MANY timc3 T have hoard this
said: "I could get along nicely with
my work if my foot did not feel so un
comfortable aud even painful." With
out any doubt the woman who makes
this remark goes about the house in
thin loose slippers. I used to do it
myself. I thought I had to because
others did, but a lew experiments con
vinced me that the only way to do work
comfortably is to wear thick-soled
shoes. One very soon becomes ac
customed to them, and will find great
relief. Thero is always more or loss
running out doors to bo done, and there
is great danger of takiug cold if the

Kubblns-Posts a Necessity.
A Miciiioan farmer writes to tho
Western llural: The blood channels in
the vascular systems of farm animals
frequently become more or loss ol
structod for shorter or longer intervals,
which leads to the accumulation of heat
.in the obstructed parts of the circula
tion, in various parts of tho body at dif
ferent times. Tho result is almost in
tolerable itching, aud a desire and a
necessary desire, top to rub the affect
ed part against -something, so as to
start the circulation and abate the dis
comfort. It is this itching, which
occurs more frequently when tho blood
is foul, as tho result of impurities in
air, food, or water, that leads to great
destruction of fences in many instances.
The cattlo, horses, or "swino can
not avoid it; cannot forego tho neces
sity of relieving their pain or discom
fort by rubbing against any object that
is accessible. Our own personal sensa
tions at times teach this fact. So mnch
may explain tho necessity that animals
in "our pastures, yards, etc, have to
rub, and that they" certainly must rub
against fences when no other places or
facilities are afforded them.
To preserve fences alone. I think it
will pa well to put ono set of rubbing
posts in every pasture, lot or ynrd, and
when tho pastures are larger than live
acres, two sets of rubbing-posts should
bo provided, and more in large pastures.
The best plan 1 now think of is to set
two strong-posts firmly in tho ground,
say ten feet apart, some rods from any
fence: One post may be threo feet high."
tho other ten feet above ground. A
stout coupling pole live or six inches
in diametor may bo fitted and fastened
to the top of each post reaching from
one post to the other. This willgivo a
chance for animals of various sizes to
nib, which is equally convenient and
necessary to all sizes and most kinds of
stock, especially in tlie spring of the
year. And it may be set down ,as cer
tain that such a simple convenience to
the animals will, pay for more tlian its
cost in preventing tho destruction of
To toe general farmer, time Is cash,
and the question of root feeding actual
ly turns upon the labor involved in rais
ing these roots, rather than upon the
benefits derived from them as an article
of food.1 From a large number of ex
periments it? has .been found that the
feeding valueo! a" 'turnip is about six
and one-half cents per bnshel, rating"
hay at twelve dollars per ton. though
some foreign authorities place tlfe value
at four arid ono-third cents per buhcl
of sixty pounds. Tho amount of water;
in a turnip is "twenty-three twenty
fifths of its weight, and it can not be
held that the five pounds of nutritions
food in any way enhances the valne of
this element of water or converts it into
matter for bone and tissue. The ques
tion then is one of concentration of
food. Can one acre of land be made to
produce a food that will' far excel the
feeding qualities of the turnip or man
golds? If tho growth of rootH is made
part of the labor of thearm, it becomes
simply one of a "rotation of foods, and
to bo- estimated a? a sanitary effect
rather than a method of supplying the
livo stock with a more economical foodl
or one superior in it3 results to hay and
grain. Exchange. -
